Manchester United want to sell defender Luke Shaw for €20m during the January transfer window, according to reports.

Shaw, who joined the Red Devils during Louis van Gaal's tenure in the summer of 2014, hasn't been in Jose Mourinho's plans this season, with The Times reporting that he will look to move on the former Southampton left back in the new year.

Shaw has made just 49 appearances since joining the club, with a double leg fracture, which ruled him out for almost the entire 2015/16 season, scuppering his progress

Mourinho has publicly questioned Shaw's performance level since taking over at Man United, and it appears that his days at the club are now numbered.

Fenerbache in the Turkish league are reportedly interested in signing the England international, with a fee of just over €20m being reported.

This season has seen the 22-year-old make just two appearances in the League Cup, with Shaw likely needing a move to have any chance of forcing his way into the England squad for next summer's World Cup.
